In brief: ABCESS, get seen
I recommend getting seen and possibly getting a stat ct scan to look for an organized abcess (pus collection).
This abcess may need incision & drainage (w/ cultures) to determine what the best antibiotic choice, however the surgery is usually the proper treatment. High fever, body aches, vomiting are signs of systemic infection (bacteria in blood) so i would go right away! hope your better soon!
